My favorite beer bar just put this beer in the cooler today. I'm told it's so new that Boulder hasn't even listed it on their site - and checking that seems true. I couldn't find much about it on the web, either.

Come in a 22oz bottle - the first I've seen in this size from Boulder - at least here on the East Coast.

It smells like a nice wheat beer - no fruitiness in the nose. The color is a bit darker than most wheat beers, almost bordering on a lager color.

I think Boulder has produced another delicious beer. It's light and not overly carbonated. The blueberry is understated and I detect more of a note of sweetness than of fruit.

Definitely a beer I could drink more than one of.

Nice looking beer. Hazed golden amber. Nice beige head leaves decent lace. Aroma is of mashed blueberries and wheat tang. Flavor follows suit and it is a good summer quaffer. The blueberry is not too dominating, which is good. It mixes in nicely with the wheat base to create a nice, refreshing midsummer beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy straw with a slight blue tint to it, and a white head, opaque.

S: Wheat and blueberry are noticeable, but the nose is a bit faint.

T: Taste also includes wheat and blueberry, but it's a nice strong flavor.

M: Medium bodied and smooth. Refreshing.

O: Recommended for those who like the fruit infused hefeweizen variety of beer. I liked it a lot, though I don't feel like this beer could do justice to the album to which it's name references.

Note: This review is for a bottle that was only a few days removed from being delivered to the BD. Based on the other reviews it looks like beer has a short shelf life, so beware if you're looking to try it.

A – Beautiful crystal clear amber. White head settles low and sticks around through the drink.

S – Blueberry maple syrup.

T – Soft, bready wheat into blueberry. The fruit note has a processed edge to it, more jam-like than fresh, but still pleasant. Nice balance, and not overly sweet.

M – Medium body with a nice carbonation that helps balance out the fruit in the profile.

O – A solid beer. I was pleasantly surprised by the balance, body, and smoothness. I’d have to say it’s the best blueberry beer I’ve had to date.

Got a bomber for 6.25 since it's the only way to try this beer. Bastards.

A - Light amber in color with a light head that quickly diminishes. Pretty good.

S - mostly slight wheat with very mild berry smell. Smells of what could be a good beer.

T - Meh it's a pretty good wheat beer with mild fruit flavors. Not as bitter as most fruit beers and no way cloying as some fruit beers so it really is pretty mild. Overall pretty good.

M - Duh. It's light to medium bodied like most wheat beers.

D - Overall I really don't love it. Sure it's beer. Sure it's blackberry. But when you love big beers this is not enough fruit flavor or ABV to keep me interested. Pass.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a clear orange with one finger of off-white head with just a hint of purple. Active carbonation.

S - Tangy wheat and a fruity, natural blueberry aroma.

T - Less tart than I expected - nice clean cereal taste with a hint of lemon. Blueberry flavor is definitely noticeable but not synthetic or overbearing. Some floral/spicy hop flavors, perhaps, and restrained bitterness. Simple and satisfying.

M - Light body, but a bit too gassy.

D - This isn't a style I tend to reach for, but Kinda Blue is nicely executed. Simple, tasty, and a refreshing summer quencher. It could work well with a salad course.

Has a strange look. It's straw, but with a dark hue. After you see it's a berry flavored beer, it makes sense. On top is a huge pillow of white bubbles.

Smells like a normal wheat beer. You note some flowers and the wheat, but also something different. The berry scent is delicate and muted, not obnoxious like other berry beers.

The flavor resembles the smell. There is an obvious berry presence, but it's very mild and only slightly noticeable.

Some good stuff going on in the mouth. It's gently sweet from the wheat, and moderately bitter from the hops, but everything is balanced by the sweet tartness of the berries. It lacks the carbonated bite I expected, and almost has a creaminess to it.

Highly drinkable. It's not too sweet and you won't get sick of the sweetness after one bottle. It has a nice taste and the ABV of 5.5 means you don't have to worry about going to jail after just a couple.
